Tedoff Property
T
he Tedoff property acquisition protects approximately 810 feet of the South Fork Peachtree Creek stream bank and almost five acres of its floodplain. Although the Tedoff property is a substantial greenway acquisition, more than 800 miles of streams still violate water quality standards in the 10-county metropolitan Atlanta area, according to the Clean Water Campaign. In a region that depends on surface water for 98 percent of its drinking water resources, this is an alarming statistic. Ultimately, the residents bear the burden of this pollution problem through higher treatment costs, fishing or swimming restrictions, and loss of scenic/property value. However, every property owner who participates in the City of Atlanta Greenway Acquisition Project can feel confident about improving water quality for both their neighborhood creek and Georgia's primary drinking water supply - the Chattahoochee River.
